The Digital Kaleidoscope: What are Emerging Digital Management Views and Hybrid Patterns

Digital kaleidoscope shows the ever-evolving dynamic view, hybrid digital patterns, and mixed cultures. 

The emergence of potential opportunities for exploiting digitization is likely to follow a nonlinear pattern as the pervasiveness of an organization's digitization journey increases. The digital ecosystem expands when the business community broadens its scope and consumes all sorts of resources. The digital paradigm shift has many dimensions such as socio-cultural, socio-technical, socio-economic, organizational, scientific, and philosophical lenses, just to name a few. So, when looking at digital kaleidoscope: What are emerging digital management views and hybrid patterns?

Identify the digital patterns and full-spectrum of digital characteristics or interests across the engagement/delivery/operations: The enterprise is nothing more than a “switch” in the network lattice of the digital ecosystem. Hyperconnectivity, interdependence, over-complexity, and ambiguity are all emerging characteristics of the digital businesses. Digital kaleidoscope has the variety of patterns and the full spectrum of colors. The emergence of potential opportunities for exploiting digitization is likely to follow a nonlinear pattern as the pervasiveness of an organization's digitization journey increases. From the digital management perspective, try to digitally connect key resources and assets in the business context across the digital ecosystem. Typically look at those emerging digital characteristics from the business impact perspective and from a solution perspective. Every serious problem facing us today has been caused by the certain level of dysfunction, and human dysfunction is caused by the interaction of hidden (intangible and invisible) human affective, cognitive, imaginative and connotative functions and content. So, carefully detect those patterns and symbols, but also understand the real problems underneath and solve them in the right way.

Spot key business ingredients which can be woven into dynamic organizational capability and core business competency: The dynamic digital organizations need to get away from letting things fall through and start creating the “integrated wholes” by utilizing the correct processes to solve complexities and underpin the core business capability. The digital capability is dynamic, it is important to not only putting the pieces together but also blending them in such a way that the emergent whole is somehow more than the sum of its parts. Thus, digital kaleidoscope does not just show some random colors or pictures, it presents the cohesive patterns and delightful themes. The highly scalable digital organizations can expand and amplify its influence with the ability to co-create and amplify innovation effect in the expanding digital ecosystem evolving customers, suppliers, channel partners, suppliers, and industry ecosystem participants. The digital kaleidoscope also presents the strong patterns of hyper-connectivity and cross-functional communication. The increasingly virtual and dispersed nature of organizations and the multigenerational digital workforce are two factors redefining collaboration practices both within the enterprise and with external stakeholders. Real-time communication is now all about real-time sharing, transparency, active listening, two-way trust in the wisdom of the team, giving proper credit where it is due and constant experimentation.


Orchestrate the hybrid “truth” and fine tune the dynamic organizational structure from both collaboration and competition perspectives: Digital is full of uncertainty, velocity, complexity, and ambiguity. It blurs the geographical, functional, organizational, and even industrial borders nowadays. Digital is fluid with nonlinear interaction. Thus, digital kaleidoscope also shows dynamic design patterns with varying sizes and bold colors. You can’t separate things properly or you cannot predict the actual effect of interactions straightforwardly. Because the dynamic design allows the organization to morph into living conditions and organizational capacities change to allow a better fit for the purpose. High mature digital businesses can provide a more intensive and creative working environment enabling the organization to get all right people with the right capability in the right position to solve the right problems from right angles all at once. It keeps evolving a healthy life cycle to achieve the state of dynamic balance. Digital leadership is brave and driven, don’t just react to change, but proactively drive digitalization and provide the "best solution" for the business' requirement, offering added value and feature insights based on system understanding, create new digital competency for developing a highly responsive digital organization.

When a new stage emerges in the progression of society and advance of the technology, the continued use of the old paradigm, the old-world-view-lens, creates ever-increasing problems. Digital kaleidoscope shows the ever-evolving dynamic view, hybrid digital patterns, and mixed cultures. So, people have to frame a new mindset, learn to use the new lens of the new era, and acquire a new thinking, knowing, and doing based on the emerging views and patterns, for making a digital leap and maximizing the full digital potential.
